After Bob and Kay Comiskey’s children moved out of their beachfront Normandy Park home, interior designer Amy May worked with the couple “to re-imagine the floor plan, and to balance openness with intimate spaces for specific functions,” she says. “Each space has a purpose and a different feeling; each has its own personality.” In the living area, May opted for “not a whole lot of color for the beachy vibe; we used it sparingly, or in art, which is less permanent. The space is soft and subdued with pattern and color.”  (Steve Ringman/The Seattle Times)
